A SEPTA station that serves as the gateway between the middle of everything and the suburbs.. In Short Attached to the Gallery, the first enclosed shopping mall in the United States, Market East Station is convenient to pretty much everything in Center City and the suburbs, thanks to the SEPTA trains that run in and out of the station. The Pennsylvania Convention Center, Independence National Park, City Hall and more are all within walking distance of this train station. There's no shortage of food options around Market East. If you need to pick up groceries on the way home during the week, there's Reading Terminal Market nearby.
